    Default 5min epoxy "saltwater safe"?

    #ed_op#DIV#ed_cl#Is 5min epoxy (standard hardware store stuff) safe to use once it has cured (ie: say give it a good 30mins)? I would like to pin some rocks together and would love to use 5min epoxy to do this (easier to use than the "putty epoxy"). #ed_op#/DIV#ed_cl#

    The only epoxy that i'm certain of being reef-safe is the green w/ white center "putty"epoxy that can be bought at Home Depot.It goes by the name AquaMend down here.Another alternative to epoxy,which IMO is better,is drilling some 1/2" holes in the LR and useing PVC as dowels to join the LR.
